Auckland Museum redevelopment
Auckland Museum has been redeveloped over the past 12
Allendale performed the electrical
installation for both the existing Museum upgrade (from 1995-2000)
and the more recent Stage 2 works - Grand Atrium Project.
The recent works increased the floor space of the museum by 60% and
encompassed digging out 2 basement levels and infilling the
existing crescent at the rear of the building.
The new space is fitted out as storage , offices, classrooms,
special exhibition space and function areas. The electrical work
was done for Hawkins Construction and had a final value in excess
of $3 M.
Special care was required during construction to interface with the
existing installation so as not to disrupt the working Museum or
the unique nature of this majestic building.
